Chris Tangey

Country: Australia 🇦🇺

Chris has 30 years Cinematography and Photography experience, but only in the last 6 years has he concentrated on aerial cinematography. Chris has received two Jury Commendations in past Siena Awards for his films "An Ancient land" and "Unseen Australia." In 2020 and 2021 he amassed a total of 17 international award wins for aerial cinematography, including 3 different New York City festivals.

Recent Aerial Cinematographer credits include: "Boy from the Bush" a 2022 Universal Pictures feature film, the 2-part finale of the U.S. 2020 season of "The Bachelor" for Warner Brothers, and documentaries including BBC's "Nomad-in the footsteps of Bruce Chatwin" under the direction of film legend Werner Herzog, BBC Natural History Unit's blue-chip nature series "Seven Worlds-One Planet" and Paul Clarke's "Midnight Oil-Backburning". He filmed for a global TVC for Tourism Australia "Hemsworth" plus national TVCs . Chris directed and shot the first music video ever permitted at the iconic Uluru/Ayers Rock for classic Australian band "GANG-gajang", but his passion remains his short films on landscape and nature. Chris is also an official drone educator for L.A.-based film and television industry hub, Stage32.
As a person, Chris has a thirst for adventure including finding fresh landscapes to shoot. At 18 he conducted a lone 2 year search for the supposedly extinct Tasmanian Tiger or Thylacine. Later in life he led several expeditions through remote Australia to recover equipment from the 1860/61 Burke and Wills expedition, finally being successful on the 3rd attempt by recovering artefacts from their "Return Camp 32."
